I am an artist, travel photographer and some time writer.. and this is my webpage, blog, social media or whatever is the latest IT fad of the day since I started sharing my travels online eons ago.  It’s not even fashionable to say I backpack anymore cos literally it isn’t - luggage puller? - doesn’t sound right and definitely unromantic ;p 
    Be that as it may be, I think I can say I’ve seen a great deal of the world, more than most people do anyway.. although as you can see below, there is a huge continent out there that I have yet to explore - another of my dreams., sigh.  
     And for the record, home is humble Singapore, a little red dot that you have to squint real hard and imagine looking through a super powerful microscope to see on the map below ;p  
     Enjoy browsing through the stories and be inspired to head for the “wilderness” - for nothing beats the real adventure, good or bad, of wandering out there to experience the strange lands beyond to one’s heart’s content..http://irreverenttimes.wordpress.comshapeimage_2_link_0
